East Stirlingshire 1-0 Arbroath

Kevin Nisbet's long-range strike was the only only goal of the game as East Stirling recorded a win over Arbroath.

The hosts came close to doubling their lead when Neil McCabe headed the ball against the crossbar.

They were unable to increase their advantage before half-time and continued on the attack after the break.

Despite chances to increase their lead they had to settle for a slim victory over third-placed Arbroath.
